10LO takes off his disguise, and shouts “Sister! Are we not (something)?” I didn’t get all of what he said, since my attention was diverted to an opening door, revealing more of these dysfunctional mandroids. She apparently isn’t really interested in what 10LO has to say, since she starts shooting at us. I get hit a few times (why are the gun blasts icy?), and am on the brink of death (3HP).
Well, I can’t help my party if I’m not conscious. I step back, and cast Physician, Heal Thyself (Cure Critical Wounds). It’s fleeting though – I get hit again. Preston finally realizes were in a fight, so I clear out of the way for him to get through. He immediately dispatches three of the mandroids with his bow. I hand him one of these concussion grenades that I’ve picked up, give him a touch of good, and wish him luck.
Seerath tries to make an exit, but we entangle her with a spell and she gets caught in rubble. While that’s good, there’s a bit of an negative side effect: a bunch of the rubble shifts, opening a previously closed tube. Two great masses ramble out, looking like a combination of large tumors and an odd assortment of body parts – perhaps they just sort of merged with this tube being closed off? We attack, with disgusting results. One gets stuck on the entanglement, and is ripped open.
Vile is not even close to who I’d describe it.
With every tear it quivers and pulses, and seems to almost double in size. Piercing and slashing only makes it bigger. Bludgeoning seems to work better, and fire is best – it doesn’t seem like it can regenerate from fire damage. While I’m wondering if maybe the other bodies have more grenades, Preston throws one that way.
House ruling: Badger’s Ferocity: when casting on Vayu, the spell applies to his whole body, and can use the benefits on alternating attacks. He chooses evens or odds.
